Why are Glycerine and Lecithin used together in an otherwise butter/oil formulation?
I’ve been researching recipes just to try a simple body butter and tried a few variations yesterday. I would now like to try one that would be way less greasy to use on the face and sinks in quite well but isn’t a lotion, as such.
I’ve seen a recipe using just oils, butters and essential oil (and usual Vit E) BUT also including Glycerine and Lecithin. No preservative added.
It’s completely thrown me off and I’ve tried to research the uses of these and I’m unsure why both have been used and whether these are the two ingredients I’d need to make the product sink in better (or it’s for an entirely different purpose)?
Any ideas? Thank you
